Sundance Film Festival 2021 Cuts Down From 11 To 7 Days


The Sundance Film Festival 2021 edition, which will be adapting to the pandemic environment, will run from Jan. 28 to Feb. 3. That’s only seven days versus previous years when the fest traditionally took place over 11 days.


Sundance is also reportedly cutting capacity in theaters to 25% due to COVID-19 safety concerns. The festival also asked Park City to wave a requirement that 70% of events be hosted in the town.


At the end of June, Sundance announced its plans to move forward with a truncated festival that will run cinema programming of the festival simultaneously in certain cities around the globe, as well as premiering a bulk of its programming online.
